I read an interesting article on the health benefits of mineral and hot baths.  The focus is Japan and balneology or balnetherapy, which means the “treatment of disease by bathing”.  Whereas it…Continue

Guys I'm curious about your input.  After being at a spa for a while - Korean Jumjibang (spelling?) I find that it can get a little boring.  Sometimes I strike up conversation with another guy. …Continue

I used to go to Dillon's years ago when I lived closer. It was a great place, very nude friendly. I suspect the place hasn't changed much since I last went.

Their website 

http://www.dillonsrussiansteambath.com/index.php

shows pictures that seem to me look like the place has been updated and modernized quite a bit since I was last there. That suggests to me that things are going well for them and the business is successful.

Have a great time there. Wish I could join you.

Has anyone been to Dillon's Russian Steam Bath in the Boston area.  I'm visiting this week and might have a chance to go this Thursday night.  I can't find much about it though.
